if possible, and this year he did It The
result waa; the team, mtioh the same
bnnch the Athletic showed up last fall,
ran away from the gong' and has been
rnnin since. And yet as good a friend
ot the Giants and as good a critic of the
game as old Sam Crane, himself once a
great fclayar, fears that the breakneck
speed of the Nw Yorkers may hurt
them. They haVe evidently been driven
Into the fight by McGraw under eat-'em
alive orders and as Crane fitly points
"out this method of warfare Is not with'
otit its hazards. Tiere is a chance of ex
hausting Speed and strength too early
in the season. The ten-lap foot race is
not w6n on the first or second times
atonnd. Often the winner finishes last
on the early laps. In base ball, of course,
' we do hot mean to. say that a late start
offers any particular advantage, out as
" experience has frequently shown, too
much dash at the outset may bring a
reaction; It would be strange, of eourse.
for the Giants or any other team to
get through the season without Its run
of hard luck. ' Yet we are disposed freely
to admit that as' things now stand,
Jilsther Maggsy McGraw has It on the
other fellows for the sayson of 1912 Just
a trifle. It will be a surprise to us If
h does ndt wind up where he did In 1911,
although, of course, we're mindful of that
ode about the cup and the Hp.
' Umpire Johnson, doubtless, Is not the
Worst un4pire In the world, possibly not
eVen the worst In the . Western . league;
he strikes us as a very hard working,
conscientious man,, but that did not pre
vent him from making one of the rawest
decisions in Omaha during the week it
,was ever our lot . to witness. When he
called Rogge safe at the plate the Des
Moines pitcher Was tip In the air a dis
tance of some five or six feet from the
Blate and. Arbogast holding the ball
eecuredly against his person.. Rogge was
on second when a hit went clean to
center. He rounded third and tore for
home as Thomason whipped the ball In.
' It pasted Arbogast's glove hand smack
, on the fly as pretty a throw as ever
was made and at the very same second,
Colonel Rogge also hurled his husky
person Into the hand holding' the ball,
There, wasn't a chance for an argument
oa the play. Rogge wait out so clean that
even Des Moines was surprised when the
- vmp yelled safe. But so It goes. W emay
get the long end next time. Batter tip!
The worst of It was that It tied the
score, enabling es. Moines later on to

In the sun or not, his contract calls for

In mind, we find It difficult to accord the

Saturday July 6, tha Stor Triumphs
and Ancient Ored of United Workmen,
teams will clash at Rourke park. This
game will be for the benefit of the Union
Pacific strikers. Pa Rourke donated the
park and tha warns their services. This
game will have oonstdera ble to do with
tha amateur championship of Omaha
because i these two teams ar th head
liners and tha winner of tha fame will in
all probability grab the fag at the close
of this term. Last Bun day th Ancient
Order United Workmen team showed
their caliber when they "fought Ducky
Holmes' Mink league Nebraska City
team to a standstill, and if Mr, Luck had
been on ' their side ot the fence they
would have walked away with the grapes.
As it was they got the short end of a
1 to 0 score. Th Ancient Order United
Workmen got four hits and Nebraska
City two. The Ancient Order of United
Workmen boys didn't maks an error
and Nebraska City mad twa.Nebrgika
City got their two hks and one run in
the third round. Our Omaha boys wer

received at the hands of Ducky Holme

they ar . going extraordinarily food
now th , prospect are not very bright
for them to do th dropsy stunt. It la
a cinch that Frank Quigley, the manager
of the Ancient Order unltfd Workmen

NEW YORK, June 22,-The announce
ment of a pole team, composed of women,
haa been hatted by English newspapers
With 'ridicule, but the society women ot
this country who are forming th team
ar standing plueklly by their gun, that
la to say, their polo mallets, and fling
th taunts of tha Britishers back Into
their teeth, !" ;
The ssveral charge made by tha Eng
lish critics, after lumping the whole Idea
as "an American absurdity," Is that the
spectacle of woman polo players Is a
laughabla one; that the participants in
tha earns don't ride their own ponies, but
ar forced to borrow thoe ot their men
friends j that they don't dare to ride at
speed, but walk around and around eaoh
other tamely In the middle ot the field;
that the goal line must be widened to
th entire width of the back line, to per
mit of any foal being scored; and, worst
of all, thai no woman could hold a gal
loping horae wtlhout using both hands,
much less strike at the ball successfully.
The American women who have come In
for tha gibes of the Britisher ara the
fourteen enthusiasts who recently formed
tha Meadow Lark Polo club of Long Is

strange to say, but he is In that capacity
mainly a a coach, who Is already learn
